The Ijaw Youths Congress has dared the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Government not to contemplate the arrest of former President Goodluck Jonathan over the ongoing probe of massive fraud and embezzlement alleged to have taken place under his watch.
The youths, who converged at Wellington Hotel Effurrun, Delta State, for the 2016 annual Major Isaac Boro anniversary celebration with the theme, “The ideals of Adaka Boro and the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta: The way forward,” criticised the present administration for limiting its anti-corruption campaign only to the Jonathan regime.
The IYC president, Udengs Eradiri, said
On the renewed militancy in the region, Eradiri said the opening of the Maritime University in Okerenkoko, Delta State, for academic activities was the first condition for a roundtable discussion with the Federal Government towards ending ongoing militants’ onslaught in the region.
Eradiri said, “People have started discussing. There was a meeting in Abuja yesterday (Wednesday) but I told them that such a meeting would not work.
“If they want us to talk, they must first open the Maritime University and start admitting students, then we would now sit and talk. The same issues for which Adaka Boro and Ken Saro-Wiwa were killed are the same issues the Avengers are raising.
“There are no Avengers anywhere. Settle these issues and the avengers would fizzle away.”
So once Maritime University in Tompolo’s village opens, there’ll be peace in Niger Delta? Interesting.
